mmmm... well you asked for it ... !!<= br>

Moss gives H4 LED at 25 W= per light
Typical halogen H4 is around = 55W
Thus a net savings of 30 W per ligh= t.
1W =3D 1J per sec
1kWh is 3.6 mJ
So extr= a energy used/saved is 0.03 kW per hour
=3D 0.108 mJ per hour
using 35mJ energy content per litre of gas= oline
this translates i= nto 3.7ml =3D approx. 2.5 teaspoons per hour per light saving

So 5 teaspoons pe= r hour net saving for both lights.
Note = this is just the electrical energy savings.
<= div>
So allowing 90% efficy for generato= r and say 30% for the IC engine likely net saving is around 18.5 teaspoons = or 23.1 ml per hour !!

I am wondering what the ener= gy savings would be between these LED lights and the standard sealed beam l= ights I now use?
